GEORGETOWN, Del.- It is a razor thin margin of victory but it will stand in the Sussex County GOP primary for sheriff.

A recount was conducted Thursday morning and the results are the same. Challenger Robert T. Lee has beaten incumbent Sheriff Jeff Christopher by 21 votes.

All 479 absentee votes were counted, but that did not change the results.

The Sussex County Board of Elections will finalize the results Friday. Christopher told WBOC he believes there were violations at the polls and the board will consider his grievances on Friday as well.
